"The editor has assembled from Leonardo's Notebooks, The Treatise on Painting, and from Leonardo's artistic production, a significant edition presenting a complete picture of the artist's intellectual growth. The originality of this work lies in the systematic grouping of the passages of Leonardo's writings that concern painting. In the grouping of the materials the aim has been to bring out the problems of interpretation; it is the direct opposite of a simple anthology and is, instead, a reconstruction of the underlying meaning." from the jacket flap.
